Keep your dogs leashed. If you are approaching a person with a dog on a leash ask before you pet the dog. Not all dogs are people friendly. It's always best to ask before approaching and when in doubt, give them a wide berth.

Please remember the ferry line rules:

*Vehicles cannot go beyond the crosswalk (at the beginning of the ferry line) when the ferry is docking or already docked and if they are beyond that line in the handicapped zone picking up handicapped passengers-you must wait until the ferry departs or you are directed to leave by the Police or CBL staff

*Do NOT stand/congregate in the freight area-also be aware that the walkway between the ramp and the shelter is also used by the forklift to move freight-don't block that path or step partially out of the way trying to make yourself thin so that the forklift can squeeze through-the forklift is capable of doing as much, if not more damage than a car-keep the areas clear so that the loading and unloading process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. The sooner the freight is moved, the sooner you will get on the ferry.

It cannot be emphasized enough: place readily visible numbers on your house so that we can find you in the event of an emergency--if you rent out a cottage it is imperative that the renter know the street and house number they are calling from-post the info at the entrance/exit as well as by the phone. We have had problems (as recently as last week with a fire call) when an emergency occurs and people don't know where they are on the Island. "Near the water" does not help at all.

Please call either 766-2929 or 874-2466 for an appointment.

Please note the change in schedule to three days a week.   (Beginning May 4th)

 This change will remain in effect throughout the year.  We are very grateful to Maine Medical Partners and Portland Family Medicine for extending the clinic hours on Peaks. 

 The warmer weather is awakening the ticks, and it's time to pay attention.  Dogs and cats need their protection, and so do you and your children.  Tick-borne diseases, including Lyme, are on the rise in the Northeast, including Maine, and yes, on our island.  Among suggestions of things you can do to avoid a tick bite are:  tuck long pants into socks when in the woods and check yourself and your family members daily for ticks.  The Health Center has bookmarks with tick facts including tick identification, and tick removal.  Stop by and pick one up.

Please beware of communicating with unknown persons on the internet and monitor your children and novice users. Remember the IRS will not communicate by email, there are no African royalty in need of your $1000.00 in  return for $100,000.00 and if someone your niece know is in a Mexican jail and is in need of bail money he’s probably not good for her anyway.

commuters may want to park their cars down front a few minutes before the ferry arrives
those who wait till the last second often find themselves paying for "premium parking"
spaces, these include, no parking any time, no parking here to corner, handicapped parking only...$30-$200 for five minutes doesn't seem like a good deal to me.
